CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Painkillers, juvenile found in  hotel room

A London man was arrested Saturday after deputies found him in a hotel room with a juvenile, drug paraphernalia and painkillers, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

James Davis, 67, was arrested at a southern Laurel County hotel about 4:25 a.m. after deputies Brett Reeves and Kirk Mays responded to a complaint that an unusual number of people were coming and going from his room.

Deputies found a 17-year-old boy and drug paraphernalia. They also learned Davis had received 150 oxycodone pills on Thursday and only had 22 left, as well as 50 Xanax pills, though only three remained.

Davis said he is a patient at a Tennessee pain clinic.

Davis was charged with first- and third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and endangering the welfare of a minor. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Detective Jason Back continues the investigation.

James W. Hicks, 38, was stopped on KY 30 near London by sheriff’s detectives Brad Mitchell and Jason Back.

After an investigation, Hicks was arrested.

Hicks now faces charges of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense and first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense. He is accused of trafficking less than 2 grams of methamphetamine and possession of the same drug.

He is jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
